Productivity is going to live here today. And there aren't going to be any excuses. Or at least no excuses that are going to stop me from getting shit done.
I am all about bribing and bargaining with myself to accomplish what I want. I found an awesome little article that had ideas for "155 ways to reward yourself", and I thought, hell...there have got to be at least 7 I can use today that are within my budget and time constraints. Of course, I couldn't find many I wanted, but they did get my ideas flowing.
I've already knocked one task off my To Do list today, and this blog will be another. Already at 2 of 7 done? Heck, yeah.
So what I'm going to do is think of 7 things to reward myself with if I can accomplish all my tasks.
My seven bribes of today are...
1. Starbucks fancy coffee drink
One of my other tasks is at Sbux, so I'm going to try and accomplish something else and see if I can get this reward while I'm there.
2. Paint my toenails
I've managed to get the glitter polish off my toes, but haven't had the chance to repaint. I'm going to give myself permission to pamper when I get another task done.
3. Sing loudly to a new fav song
I'm currently obsessed with Honestly by Gabbie Hanna. I'm going to sing loudly with earbuds in to drown out my own voice.
4. Eat a fudge pop
I have resisted the box of fudgsicles in my freezer. Accomplishing a task will give me permission to splurge.
5. 30 minute listen to current audio book
Right now I'm listening to Wolf With Benefits by Shelly Laurenston. I'm 10 hours in and it's a struggle to put it down, so I'm saving this one for near the end.
6. 10 minutes of phone games.
I'm on a streak in candy crush soda. So I've got all kinds of fancy candies waiting for me to crush them.
7. Listen to a podcast.
The "Special Secret Content" is out for Print Run, and I'm dying to dig in.
What are your favorite bribes? Let's make our own list, because one of the ones on the list I linked is to re-organize your closet, and I'm not about that life. Let's convince our inner procrastination to take a hike together.
